Meet Kid, the youngest descendant of a rich, demented hotelier named Big Daddy. Kid is the newly appointed manager of “The Suites,” but his good looks and swagger can’t hide a rough childhood of strange therapies and brain operations that have awakened inner demons and psychodramas. This of course makes him eminently qualified to perform lobotomies. A failed rockstar/successful madman gets one last chance to prove his worth—and regain his sanity—by turning the hotel that was once his childhood sanctuary into a lucrative business despite a host of obstacles including seductive shapeshifters, dead literary heroes and Kid’s own sister, who would love nothing more than to see him fail miserably.
